Improve your sonnet skills, or write your first one. Guided by an internationally published author of sonnets, villanelles, and other metrical poems, you’ll first read classic and contemporary sonnets to see how and why they work. Then — with or without shortcuts — you’ll write one or more of your own. Next you’ll see how a new poem can be improved by revision. You’ll leave with at least one new or improved sonnet, as well as insights about how writing poems in form can unlock deeper meaning and enhance everything you write.
